My Votes – Week of January 30th

Feb 14, 2023


A rule bill is a bill passed through a full House vote under a rule that has been voted and agreed upon by the Rules Committee. Rule bills require a simple majority of the House to pass (218 votes) through a recorded vote.


H.R. 382

Pandemic is Over Act

Passed  |  220-210
My Vote  |  YES

This bill would terminate the COVID-19 public health emergency.


H.R. 497

Freedom for Health Care Workers Act

Passed  |  227-203
My Vote  |  YES

This bill would remove the federal requirement for health care providers who participate in federal cost-share programs to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


H.R. 139


Passed  |  221-206
My Vote  |  YES

This bill requires each executive agency to reinstate the telework policies that were in place on December 31, 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This would help make government employees at the IRS, Social Security Administration, and other federal agencies return to the office and get to work addressing the massive bureaucratic delays and backlogs they’ve let pile up while teleworking during the pandemic.



Relating to a national emergency declared by the President on March 13, 2020

Passed  |  229-197
My Vote  |  YES

This joint resolution terminates the national emergency concerning COVID-19 declared by the President on March 13, 2020.



Denouncing the Horrors of Socialism

Passed  |  328-86
My Vote  |  YES

This concurrent resolution denounces socialism and opposes the implementation of socialist policies in the United States.



Removal of Rep. Ilhan Omar from House Foreign Affairs Committee

Passed  |  218-211
My Vote  |  YES

This resolution prohibits Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN-05) from serving on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. I voted in favor of this measure because I have concerns over her ability to serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee following her comments echoing long-standing anti-Semitic tropes about Jews obtaining influence through money. Rep. Omar will be able to serve on other House committees which she is appointed to.
